This observational study aims to objectively quantify ambulation after neuraxial anesthesia and analgesia for cesarean delivery and vaginal delivery, respectively, by using activity tracker technology. The hypothesis was that vaginal delivery is associated with greater ambulation during the first 24 h postdelivery, compared to cesarean delivery. Read More

    Chronic administration of parecoxib exerts anxiolytic-like and memory enhancing effects and modulates synaptophysin expression in mice.
    BMC Anesthesiol 2017 Nov 13;17(1):152. Epub 2017 Nov 13.
    Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, University of South China, Hengyang, Hunan, 421001, People's Republic of China.
    Background: Previous studies have shown that cyclooxygenase-2, a key enzyme that converts arachidonic acid to prostaglandins, is involved in anxiety and cognitive processes, but few studies have investigated the effects of chronic administration of cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors on anxiety, learning and memory under normal physiological conditions. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of chronic administration of parecoxib, a cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor, on anxiety behavior and memory performance under normal physiological conditions and to explore the possible neural mechanism underlying parecoxib-mediated effects.

    Methods: Adult male ICR mice were randomly divided into four groups: the control group and three parecoxib groups. Read More

During these 56 yr, airway management was provided primarily by basic techniques with or without the use of a face mask. Airway maneuvers were inherited from the artisanal era: head extension and mandibular advancement. Read More

    Effects of Changes in Arterial Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen Partial Pressures on Cerebral Oximeter Performance.
    Anesthesiology 2017 Oct 30. Epub 2017 Oct 30.
    From the Departments of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care (A.S., J.R.F, P.E.B., M.D.R.), Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Surgery (M.D.R.), University of California, San Francisco, California.
    Background: Cerebral oximetry (cerebral oxygen saturation; ScO2) is used to noninvasively monitor cerebral oxygenation. ScO2 readings are based on the fraction of reduced and oxidized hemoglobin as an indirect estimate of brain tissue oxygenation and assume a static ratio of arterial to venous intracranial blood. Conditions that alter cerebral blood flow, such as acute changes in PaCO2, may decrease accuracy. Read More

    Effects of lung protective mechanical ventilation associated with permissive respiratory acidosis on regional extra-pulmonary blood flow in experimental ARDS.
    BMC Anesthesiol 2017 Oct 27;17(1):149. Epub 2017 Oct 27.
    Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine, University Hospital of Bonn, Bonn, Germany.
    Background: Lung protective mechanical ventilation with limited peak inspiratory pressure has been shown to affect cardiac output in patients with ARDS. However, little is known about the impact of lung protective mechanical ventilation on regional perfusion, especially when associated with moderate permissive respiratory acidosis. We hypothesized that lung protective mechanical ventilation with limited peak inspiratory pressure and moderate respiratory acidosis results in an increased cardiac output but unequal distribution of blood flow to the different organs of pigs with oleic-acid induced ARDS.

    The obesity conundrum in sepsis.
    BMC Anesthesiol 2017 Oct 25;17(1):147. Epub 2017 Oct 25.
    Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, 330 Brookline Avenue, Boston, MA, USA.
    While the long-term negative effects of obesity on health is a well-studied phenomenon, its effects on acute illnesses seem to be the contrary. Several studies have indicated the possibility of an 'obesity paradox' in sepsis - where overweight and obese patients have better outcomes than normal weight patients. These meta-analyses including large numbers of patients across different countries raised an interesting but debatable topic. Read More

    Anesthesiology 2017 Oct 25. Epub 2017 Oct 25.
    From the Department of Anesthesiology, Erasme University Hospital, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium (A.J., B.I., K.T., L.B., L.V.O.); Department of Anesthesiology, Brugmann Hospital, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium (A.D., I.S., P.V.d.L.); Department of Abdominal Surgery, Erasme University Hospital, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium (P.L.); Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, University of California Irvine, Irvine, California (J.R.); and Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California (M.C.).
    Background: The type of fluid and volume regimen given intraoperatively both can impact patient outcome after major surgery. This two-arm, parallel, randomized controlled, double-blind, bi-center superiority study tested the hypothesis that when using closed-loop assisted goal-directed fluid therapy, balanced colloids are associated with fewer postoperative complications compared to balanced crystalloids in patients having major elective abdominal surgery.

    Methods: One hundred and sixty patients were enrolled in the protocol. Read More

    Propofol-induced Changes in α-β Sensorimotor Cortical Connectivity.
    Anesthesiology 2017 Oct 25. Epub 2017 Oct 25.

    Computer-controlled closed-loop drug infusion system for automated hemodynamic resuscitation in endotoxin-induced shock.
    BMC Anesthesiol 2017 Oct 23;17(1):145. Epub 2017 Oct 23.
    Department of Cardiovascular Dynamics, National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center, 5-7-1 Fujishirodai, Suita, 565-8565, Japan.
    Background: Hemodynamic resuscitation in septic shock requires aggressive fluid replacement and appropriate use of vasopressors to optimize arterial pressure (AP) and cardiac output (CO). Because responses to these drugs vary between patients and within patient over time, strict monitoring of patient condition and repetitive adjustment of drug dose are required. This task is time and labor consuming, and is associated with poor adherence to resuscitation guidelines. Read More

    Effect of interscalene block on intraocular pressure and ocular perfusion pressure.
    BMC Anesthesiol 2017 Oct 23;17(1):144. Epub 2017 Oct 23.
    Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology, Konya Training and Research Hospital, Konya, Turkey.
    Background: Interscalene block (ISB) is commonly associated with Horner's syndrome due to spread of local anesthetic to the cervical sympathetic chain. Postganglionic neurons that originate from superior cervical ganglia form the sympathetic innervation of eye. Decrease in sympathetic tone may change intraocular pressure (IOP) and ocular perfusion pressure (OPP). Read More

    Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, Mayo Clinic, 4500 San Pablo Rd, Jacksonville, Florida, 32224, USA.
    Sugammadex, a modified gamma-cyclodextrin, has changed clinical practice of neuromuscular reversal dramatically. With the introduction of this selective relaxant binding agent, rapid and reliable neuromuscular reversal from any depth of block became possible. Sugammadex can reverse neuromuscular blockade without the muscarinic side effects typically associated with the administration of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. Read More

    Role of tube size and intranasal compression of the nasotracheal tube in respiratory pressure loss during nasotracheal intubation: a laboratory study.
    BMC Anesthesiol 2017 Oct 17;17(1):141. Epub 2017 Oct 17.
    Department of Anesthesiology, Nara Hospital, Kindai University Faculty of Medicine, 1248-1 Otodacho, Ikoma, Nara, 630-0293, Japan.
    Background: Small nasotracheal tubes (NTTs) and intranasal compression of the NTT in the nasal cavity may contribute to increasing airway resistance. Since the effects of size, shape, and partial compression of the NTT on airway resistance have not been investigated, values of airway resistance with partial compression of preformed NTTs of various sizes were determined.

    Methods: To determine the factors affecting the respiratory pressure loss during the nasotracheal intubation, physical and fluid dynamics simulations were used. Read More
